#rohtannhauser Christian Gerhaher, ensembles, men's chorus & orchestra all excellent tonight. Gerhaher was humblingly wonderful.

Emma Bell's performance in #ROHTannhauser suggests she could be on her way to becoming the next big British Wagnerian.

Great choral singing at #ROHTannhauser tonight. Oh my God (literally!), I forgot how pompously religious Wagner can be.

#ROHtannhauser Wagner doesn't come much better than this: strong cast, overwhelming chorus, great orchestra, An evening to treasure.
